What starts as a poignant medical documentary about Deborah Logan's descent into Alzheimer's disease and her daughter's struggles as caregiver degenerates into a maddening portrayal of dementia at its most frightening, as hair-raising events begin to plague the family and crew and an unspeakable malevolence threatens to tear the very fabric of sanity from them all.

Looking for a creepy movie this Halloween with plenty of scares?
29 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If yes then The Taking of Deborah Logan is for you! Loved every minute of the movie. It slowly builds up to a tense finale and unlike most horrors the ending for me was perfect. It has a mixture of The Last Exorcism and Paranornal Activity with great performances from all the cast! It had me and my partner on the edge of our seat throughout. What I like most about the movie is how you can create great atmosphere on a shoe string budget. All the big scares are done without over the top CGI. Any horror fans out there will love this as it has everything you need. Will be keeping a look out for this director in the near future. 10 out of 10 for me and a movie I will be a watching again!
